    Alternative content instead of .swf in Dreamweaver 8

    peterotoole Level 1
      How do you go about placing alternative content in Dreamweaver 8 instead of a .swf should the .swf not load?

      i am completely new to Dreamweaver so i would have to talked through the whole process or directed to where i can find the answer.

      Really appreciate any help! thanks!

          Use SWF Object - 2
          Why should you use alternative content?
          The object element allows you to nest alternative content inside of it,
          which will be displayed if Flash is not installed or supported. This content
          will also be picked up by search engines, making it a great tool for
          creating search-engine-friendly content. Summarizing, you should use
          alternative content when you like to create content that is accessible for
          people who browse the Web without plugins.

            the reason i needed to show alternative content was that i am sending out a html emailer but doing it in flash instead and if the email application can't display the flash that it would display the alternative content instead which would be all html based.

            thanks for the link but it's way over my head! but at least i know what i should be looking for now, a flash object.

              I think you are in deep poo. Flash emails won't cut the mustard.
